Children's Christmas
free and Entertainment
at Alice Arm
The Children's Christmas Tree
!nd Entertainment held at Alice
Kvm, on Wednesday, was a most
lueoessful affair.   'The  hall   was
irowded to capacity and everyone
ofch young and old, spent a very
njoyable evening. The evening's
utertainment commenced with
^citations and songs by the child-
3n. and some of the older children
ave an exhibition of first-class
locution, and the audience thor-
aghly appreciated the efforts of
ihe rising generation of the town.
[t is impossible to make special
mention of any of the kiddies, all
were good and thoroughly earned
the applause given them. Great
credit is due to Miss Boa, the
school-mistress and also to the
Ipareiits of the children.   Mr. 'C. P.
iliel, secretary of the School Board
landled the programme in a most
fticient manner.
Santa Claus, who happened to
be passing, then made his appear-
since. The huge Christmas Tree
ivas' lighted, and he then distributes, bags, of nuts, candies and
granges to the children. This took
jonsiderable time and the reindeer,
who were outside in the cold were
getting restless and impatient, so
he requested Teddy Kergin and
Henry Carney to go outside and
keep them quiet. He however, got
through his happy task at last, and
made a run for the door and was
off to the next Christmas party
I before the children realized he was
gone and the, sleigh bells could be
plainly heard ringing in line- still,
frosty, star-light air, as he sped oh
his errand of mercy to another
Christmas party. >
(Alice Arm Skating
Rink Open Today
The Alice Arm Skating Rink
will be open for skating today,
(Saturday) both in the afternoon
and evening. The skating enthusiasts have put in a lot of hard
work during the week, preparing
the ice, which is now in first-class
oondition, They were successful
in connecting with Mr. J. Strom-
beck's water system and plenty -of
water is now obtainable. The
public are advised that now is" the
time to buy their tickets. Gents,
$10.00: Ladies, $5.00: and Children, $2.50. These tickets are good
for the whole season. Be a booster
and buy a ticket.
It is an expensive undertaking to
keep the home fires burning these
days'.
Granby Schools
The close of the regular school
duties in preparation for Christmas,
completes a term marked by definite extension of Granby Consolidated School activity.
Consolidation of government
sohools and promulgation of High
Schools status effected administrative simplification and recognition
by the University of British
Columbia,
The installation of free lunch
facilities, whereby, under Mrs.
Baxter's skilful management hot
chocolate is provided for elementary
school boys and girls in separate
luneh rooms and for the young
ladies of the high school, in the
library, places Granby schools in
the. forefront regarding progressive
attention to the physical needs of
the children.
At the same time the unosten-
tious but efficient policy of the
School Board, conferred the benefit of competent medical attention
to the interests of Granby pupils.
Our popular school nurse, Miss
.GamliUp._ha8. achieved, immediate
success in the response of, the
children, to maintain a school
deportment as commendable as
their excellent home training
would warrant. In addition, her
frequent visits afford the expert
scrutiny so desirable to provide
successful medical care on*the first
appearance of warning, symptoms.
As a natural consequent, this
Christmas term has been the first
one on record which has not been
marred by the deleterious effects of
an^pedemic.
The comprehensive Polytechnic
programme furnished very interesting and valuable occupation to the
studious members of the commiitity
The harmonius inception of the
Granby Bay Parents-Teachers
Association at its, first regular
session, on December 10th, was:
enhanced by a clear statement • of
its fundamental constitution. The
re-iteration of its autonomous
position made at the following
mine meeting of the Anyox Community League, met with a ready,i
courteous response from the President of that organization, who.
promised to give ample publioity to
a retraction of minutes purporting
to epitomize a misinterpreted interview kindly granted by him to the
Principal.
The Anyox Lodge No. 47, B. P.
O. E. held their Annual Memorial
Service on Sunday, December 11th,
in the .Elks Hall. A large number
of members and their wives attended. This service was postponed
from December 4th, on account of
inclement weather. "     ■
CHRISTMAS GREETINGS
This is the first Christmas publication of the
Herald and we hasten to extend the season's
Greetings to all our readers, and wish them all a
right joyous and merry Christmas, and we hope
to have the pleasure of doing the same for a good
many years to come.
Death of Miss Jessie
McKay, at Anyox
The many friends of Miss Jessie
McKay, better known as Jessie
Roberts, was shocked to hear of

for the worse took place and up to
the time of death she never spoke,
a.utt passed quietly away at the
home of her parents, on Friday

The Dawn of Prosperity
All indications now point to a
.world-wide activity of business and
the coming spring should see a
marked change for the improvement of conditions generally. The
successful conclusion of the Limitation of Armaments Conference at
Washington will prove a great
factor towards bettering conditions
throughout the world.
The settlement of the Irish
problem will immeasureably stabilize
British industry and finances and
from all appearances Great Britain
will soon' be hitting her pre-war
stride in manufacturing.
The election of a Liberal Government will go a long way
towards improving conditions in
Canada and a few months should
see a decided change for the better.
The late government was overthrown principally on account of
their reckless spending of the
public money, and the liberal
party were elected by the people
to reduce this expenditure to a
minimum and so reduce the heavy
burden of taxation which the
people of Canada has at present to
bear.
Mr. Fred Stork, the liberal
candidate, has been elected to
represent us in the Federal Parliament. He is a man that has lived
in the district for a good number of
years. He knows the needs of the
district thoroughly and we can rest
assured that he will use his best
efforts to give this district its just
dues. Everyone should give him a
helping hand irrespective of their
political views and by helping our
member at Ottawa, we are helping
to develop the vast and rich riding
he represents, and in doing so, we
are taking our part in helping to
build up a strong and virile
Canadian nation, which will, in
future years be the admiration and
the envy of the world.
Alice Arm First
The election is over and will
soon be ancient history. It is
impossible for all of us to hold the
same political views, and now that
the excitement has grown cold, let
us all get together and work for the
good of the district in which we
are living. Let us remember that
we are citizens of Alice Arm first.
Let us work together for the
benefit of the town all the time,
and let us eliminate the political
jealousies that has blighted and
ruined the future of many a promising young town in this great
Canadian west.
Farmer Ready to Take
up Land in Naas Valley
A letter was received last week
by Mrs. H. H. Carney, postmistress
of Alice Arm, from Weston,
Oregon, U. S. A, requesting information regarding the condition of
the road between Alice Arm and
the Naas Valley. The letter whieh
is printed below is sufficient evidence to show that as soon as a
road is built that farmers from all
over Canada and the United States
will flock to this fertile valley
laying at our door. The following
letter is one of several that has
reached the local post office recently
requesting information regarding
transportation facilities of the Naas
Valley.
Weston,
Oregon.
Nov. 25th, 1921
Postmaster of Alice Arm,
Sir:
We suppose you are in a
position to know the condition of
the road between your town and
Aiyansh. We have been told that
there is good land on the upper
Naas River and are thinking of
locating there. Is the road suitable for hauling from Alice Arm
across to the dipper Naas, as we
aim to come by steamer to Alice
Arm from Seattle. At what time
in the spring is the earliest that a
man could haul a load across,?
Any information that you can
give us to help us out will be
greatly appreciated. , Do you
know if the meadow land there is
good farming land or not.? We
have heard that there is lots of
good bottom meadow land open for
premption.
Thanking you in advance for
your reply, we remain,
Yours truly,
Not having permission from the
writer of the above letter we could
not publish his name.—Ed.
Subscriber: "You print some
awful stuff in your paper."
Editor: "Well, you should just
see some of the stuff we don't
print."
Bear River Bridge at
Stewart to be Repaired
News comes from Stewart that
the damage done to the Bear River
bridge by the high water this fall
is to he repaired this winter,: and
preparations are already being
made. , It is reported that the
estimated cost will be about
$20,000.
The people of Stewart are certainly to be congratulated on
having a bunch of real progressive,
live citizens in their midst. They
are out to work for Stewart all the
time and the manner in which they
negotiated with the government
for the repair of the Bear River
bridge, was a masterpiece. The
government admires a bunch of
live wires even if they do worry
them a little at times.
The Citizens Association of
Stewart does not intend to let any
of the citizens of that town go
outside looking for a job this
winter if they can help it. Meanwhile, Alice Arm is still waiting
for word from Victoria, regarding
the wing dam and Kitsault .River
bridge.

c
MINING  GOSSIP
m
iThe  following  review   of    the
|pper market was published in the
Micouver   Daily    Province,    on
ecember 9th.
[ Figures'now available show that
le consumption of copper in the
Inited States during October was
10,000,000 pounds. This beats all
revious records in monthly con-
kmptioii, even established in war
pe, local producers say.
| The last of the British supply of
pap copper—aftermath of the
far—has just been disposed of by
' War Disposals Board, advices
Jate. This 25,000,000 pounds wai
iistantly absorbed by the market
Bid England is now in tho poten-
|'al buyers column.
These two factors have had a
ry strengthening effect upon the
Imorican copper   market.      The
rgest metal sales agency in the
|Tniterl States yesterday refused to
copper  either   for   domestic
msumption or export at 15 cents
pound.     This    same    concern
Attempted without success to secure
from the copper export association
):00,000,000 pounds of   copper   to
(iiigment its fast-vanishing domes-
stocks.     The  Copper  Export
Association, which was organized
[a year ago to move the 400,000,000
Jnds   surplus   which was then
glutting   the market,   refused   to
consider  this  proposition,   it    is
{stated.
With  many   of  the    principal
Jnited  States   producers   closed
and in no position to resume
operation for two or three months
at least, local eopper men look to a
distinct revival in the industry in
this province. '
The days of low-priced copper,
when prices hovered between 11
and 12 cents, have definitely passed
local men in touch with market
conditions think.
It has been announced r that immediate criminal prosecution of the
responsible managers of. the Britannia Mines will be undertaken
by the attorney-general's department at Victoria.
The action is the outcome of the.
loss of some thirty-six lives at
Britannia Beach, when heavy rains
washed out the dam and allowed
the floods to descend upon the
mining town. Negligence on ^he
part of the managers in protecting
human life will be charged.
A deal involving two of the most
important metal producing and
refining companies in the United
States was recently completed,
when the largest individual stockholders iu the American Brass
Company agreed, subject to minor
conditions, to sell out to the
Anaconda Copper Mining Company
Terms of the Anaconda Company
are $150 cash and three shares of
stock for one share of American
Brass.

Kodak   Finishing,   Enlarging
and Copying.   Sydney Davis,
P. 0. Box 115, Anyox
Mr. and" Mrs. Tom Murphy at
the Mine, are receiving congratulations this week on the birth of
a fino bouncing boy. We understand that Master Tom is to have
charge of the "Hook and Ladder
Brigade" at the mine.
Mr. Ed. Anderson of the mine
received some very bad scalp
wounds while on duty this week as
blaster. Ed. is holding his own
and the Doctors and nurses are
sparing no pains in their attention
to him. Mrs. Anderson and children have the sympathy of the
whole community
The funeral of Mr. and Mrs.
Alex Roberts daughter, Jessie, took
place .last Sunday. Everyone
knew Jessie. She suffered practically all her life and never
murmured at all. Everyone extends
to Alex and his wife • and family
every sympathy in their hour of
trial.
Dr. .Simmons the local dentist,
left on Monday to spend Christmas
with his family in Vancouver.
Anyone suffering from toothache during the absence of the
dentist can be relieved at the
liquor store. Fred Brown has a
stock of goods, that will, if taken
in sufficient quantities kill any
kind of an ache known.
Anyox is to be congratulated on
its Doctors and nurses. We doubt
if such interest has ever been taken
in the needs of those seeking advice
and attention. We congratulate
the company on getting together
such a good working organization,
as they have at present. Those
paying their monthly dues are
more than pleased with the service
being given.
On Monday, there was great
rejoicing in the camp over a large
consignment of wet goods which
arrived on the Union boat for the
local liquor store. Unfortunately
the Pipers Band were unable to be
at the wharf owing to a previous
engagement. Never have the
citizens of Anyox received such a
welcome shock, and it is doubtful
if they will get over it until after
the New Yoar," at least.
The Salvation Army, under the
direction of Ensign Reader, held a
very successful Christmas Tree and
Party at tho mine, ou Wednesday
evening. The kiddies had a grand
time. Presents were distributed to
them all, and everyone voted it an
A 1 time.
The Granby Stores as usual are
well equipped to handle the Christmas trade. Intending purchasers
are requested to shop early. Keep
your eye on the Store advertise-
in the A. A. & A. Herald for special sales in each department.
One of the government officials
in town recently discovered three
lumps of coal' in his last consignment. He was so surprised, at his
find that it is doubtful if he would
have recovered from the shock had
not the liquor vendor been able to
prescribe to his wants in a very
satisfactory manner.
The Elks Club were at home on
Thursday, to its members', wives
and families. The hall was beautifully decorated for the occasion
and the committee who'were in
charge are to be congratulated on
their splendid work. And the
children, what a time they had, no
one could do too much for them
that night. It would be out of
order to single out any special
individual for his work in making
it a/ red letter night for the kiddies.
Everyone joined in and it was
hard to tell finally who were the
children.
The Elks Club is soon to start a
pool and cribbage tournament. It
looks like some time too by all
account,
It was the Grand Opening day
on Thursday at the liquor store.
At present it is the only store in
town where the customers do not
quote "Timothy Eaton" prices in
comparison with local prices.
Fred Brown, the liquor vendor
and. Jimmy Esplin, his assistant
are to be congratulated on the
business-like manner they handled
the needs of the long-suffering
and thirsty public.
We expect Christmas Day to be
the longest day in the year on
account of local conditions.
Will the parties who \jere heard
singing "How Dry I am" early on
Thursday morning outside the
liquor store* kindly leave their
names at the Post" "Office so that
they can claim their reward.
Mr. E. J. Leggett and Mr. Jones
of the Coke Plant, left on Thursday
for Vancouver.
Last Friday was the closing of
the public schools for the Christmas
holidays. The pupils of Miss
Leich, Miss McColl and Mr. South-
am were treated' to parties and by
all accounts everyone had a most
enjoyable time.
On Sunday morning, quite early,
some of the Elks from the local
herd wandered iu the direction of
Alice Arm and after browsing for
some hours arrived back with a
large quantity of Christmas decorations.
The Anyox Ex-Service Association held a largely attended
meeting at the Elks Hall, on Wednesday evening.
Don't forget the Elks New Year
Dance, on December 31st. Dancing 8 to 12. Everybody come and
help ring in the New Year.
On Wednesday, the Granby
Company were delivering Christmas trees to every house in town.
The skating rink at the mine is
very popular and is enjoyed by
young and old. Over $200 has
been paid in for season tickets.
The ice is first-class.
Mr. A. S. McDonald, our
local tailor, left on Thursday to
spend Christmas in Prince Rupert.
The postmaster and staff are
exceptionally busy these days, but
it will soon be all over for another
year.
